We fell in love with these air plants from Floracraft® recently and have been searching for ways to display them that reflect our crafty style. Our DIY copper plant hangers are the perfect solution. This was such a great DIY project to do because of the freedom you have to create whatever shape you want to and perfect for our Make It:Fun® challenge. We began with a length of 3mm copper tubing which we cut into a variety of lengths. There really are no rules here so embrace your creativity and know that you can’t really go wrong! We cut a total of 10 pieces for our small hanger with lengths ranging from 5.5cm – 11cm. Our larger copper plant hanger is made up of 14 pieces of copper pipe ranging in length from 8-15cm. To create the 3D shape with our copper tubing we threaded it with a matching copper wire, puling it together to form the 3D shape and tucking the remaining wire back into the tube. We suggest you play around and get your shape right before you trim the copper wire down!
Pop one or two faux air plants inside, then either sit them on a surface or hang them with clear wire from your ceiling. Either way, this is pretty much the coolest way to display your air plants and you can say “I made it” – which we think is one of the best feelings in the world! Enjoy! ~ Lia
